Netflix continues to churn new drama to the small screen with great hype – the small screen now occupies even more of our time and with the cold, wet evenings becoming even more frequent what better way to keep entertained. The latest series to hit the Netflix line-up is Narcos – a Pablo Escobar focused drama.


The 10-part series, directed by Brazil’s Jose Padilha, centres on the rise of Escobar from happy-go-lucky Colombian smuggler to filthily rich and internationally renowned drug lord, as seen through the eyes of a real-life US Drugs Enforcement Administration agent, Steve Murphy, who was sent to Bogota to capture or, better, kill him. But first we have to understand Escobar’s rise to and methods of power, which means extensive explanations of trade routes, smuggling techniques and even a little potted guide to how to make your own cocaine.
